In the afternoon we went to his school Summer Fete, which was a terrible washout and organised chaos. Euan won a bottle of Bubble bath, bought a book and two dubious looking cup cakes, (buttercream and humidity have never gone well together) then he wanted to leave. It was very busy and crowded so I was more than happy to oblige.
We did not go swimming this week as we have quite frankly seen enough water. The roads have been pretty bad and some of them closed due to flooding. When we do see sunshine or have a dry couple of hours the kids all rush out to play. Some Summer so far, but I am not giving up hope.
It is Day Eight of 'The Tour De Fleece' and I have plied my bright yellow yarn. I am waiting for a warm day so I can wash the skeins and hang them to dry to set the twist.
I have struggled a bit on the Weight Watcher front this week. Yesterday I could have gnawed my own legs off! I ate too much during the day and had to make sure I ate a really healthy evening meal.
I have been Grilling Kebabs on wooden skewers, I have tried Vegetable Kebabs, Chicken and Vegetable Kebabs, Prawn and Vegetable Kebabs and these were 'Swordfish, King Prawn and Vegetable Kebabs, with a Hot and Spicy Guava Dipping Sauce. These were a healthy hit with the boys!
I have a had a funny couple of days of nothingness really, you know when you get those sort of days? I just give in to them really, another day in Paradise and all that! I picked some raspberries today in between the rain and I had a chicken friend jump on my back and have a piggy back for the duration. I knew it was 'Rosie' even though I couldn't see her, she is the only chicken peculiar enough to do that! She climbed right up my back and chatted to me while she pecked at my hair! Them chickens do make me chuckle. I have given their coop a thorough clean so they are all nice and tidy for bed tonight, all three came to help and cluck their orders and approval. They help to the point of me tripping over them! They are like toddlers or puppies.
I can't believe somebody has only three more sleeps until they are eight years old, he is very excited. Then Henry is sixteen five days later. Two Birthday Boys in one week.
I hope you have managed to keep up with my very random blog post today. . . you will need to go and have a lie down after reading this!
